Mount Sinai Announces New Stuyvesant Town-Peter Cooper Village Care Practice
Mount Sinai Health System today announced that it will be opening a new practice in Stuyvesant Town-Peter Cooper Village, as part of its more than $500 million project to rebuild Mount Sinai Beth Israel (MSBI) and create the new “Mount Sinai Downtown” network. This practice, offering primary care and specialty services, will help achieve Mount Sinai’s goal of transforming and embracing a new model of care that focuses on serving patients in the most appropriate setting, emphasizing keeping people healthy and out of the hospital.
The Stuyvesant Town-Peter Cooper Village practice will be located at 516-518 East 20th Street, with construction expected to be completed by Fall of 2017. The practice will offer primary care and pediatric services provided by a consistent team of family medicine internists and pediatricians. A set of specialty care services, which will be determined in consultation with Stuyvesant Town-Peter Cooper Village, surrounding communities and interest groups, will also be offered on a rotating basis. The practice will operate with extended weekday and weekend hours, and will accept both walk-in and scheduled appointments.
“Serving the Downtown community has always been, and will always remain, a top priority for Mount Sinai. We are pleased to be opening the new Stuyvesant Town-Peter Cooper Village practice, increasing convenience and accessibility for patients close to home,” said Jeremy Boal, MD, President of the Mount Sinai Downtown Network. “As this project progresses, we will work with elected officials and community members to ensure we will provide the most needed primary and specialty care services.”
“The new Stuyvesant Town-Peter Cooper Village practice is another milestone toward fulfilling our vision for the Mount Sinai Downtown transformation – expanding patient access to essential, high-quality care within their communities,” said Kelly Cassano, DO, Chief of Ambulatory Care, Mount Sinai Downtown.
“The opening of this facility between Peter Cooper Village and Stuyvesant Town means residents can easily access Mount Sinai’s high quality medical care. We are pleased to welcome this incredible quality of life improvement to those who live and work in our community,” said Rick Hayduk, CEO and General Manager at StuyTown Property Services.
“It's great news that Mount Sinai will be opening a new practice serving Stuyvesant Town and Peter Cooper. It is a real win for this community -- everyone from seniors to parents with kids -- and because of its convenience, will improve access for basic medical needs," said New York City Council Member Dan Garodnick.
The new practice is part of the Mount Sinai Downtown Network, a comprehensive system of expanded and renovated outpatient facilities at three major sites with more than 35 operating and procedure rooms and an extensive network of 16 physician practice locations with more than 600 doctors, stretching from the East River to the Hudson River below 34th Street.
Mount Sinai will continue to provide specific updates to the timing and location of these transitions as they develop. For more information, please visit Mount Sinai’s Downtown Transformation website at www.mountsinai.org/downtown.
